No as most tracks are ovals
Im meaning as in you put the power on and just gos in a loop and doesn't go straight,As this car has been shortened nearly a inch compared to the likes of a standard touring car....But im going to try it 2wd before i finsh up making the belt tensioner etc,Just waiting on the clutch bell so i can get her fired up and running

Also now got all the custom throttle/brake linkage setup...

Actually, it won't. Unless you don't have a diff in the rear. The car will work perfectly fine as a 2wd car if you do not have any of the front drive system installed.

American sprint cars are based on RC10GT or touring car rear diffs, so there is really no difference from what you're building, other than the double wishbone front suspension. And there are thousands of them racing here every weekend.

Keep up the good work!

nice looking layout. if you are going to run it 2wd take the front belt off. that will totally mess up your handling in the turns..... its like applying front brakes with the extra drag of the belt on there.

some good help on dirt oval cars can be found here.... www.dirtoval.com

and here..... http://www.customworksrc.com/index2.php

Tony Stewart bought out CustomWorks in 2003 and moved them to NC from CA.

Going to carry on making this car 4wd,done far too much work to just throw it away and start it again,New rims for it have turned up which make the car a little wider and a bit better look,Can also see the fuel lines are run with a protector over them

Body to have a go at making the body and wing out of very thin stainless steel,A mate has a tig welder and is going to help as i only have a mig...Heres hoping it turns out good

Dude that's a very cool car. Have you driven it yet? If I were you I'd drive it as is, try both 4wd and taking out all the front drive train to try 2wd before doing the body. With all the changes you've made to suspension geometry you may find some quirks that require some chassis tweaks to make it fast. If you do the body first you may find yourself hacking it up later to make chassis changes.

do you just need the clutchbell or an entire clutch set-up?

a clutchbell is only about $13?

cheapest full Mugen clutch set-up.... http://ashfordhobby.com/detail.aspx?ID=1537

Ahh I know now - that's Rocky's old Car right that he got from Fong........

You will need a full clutch setup including flywheel - try putting a want add up on rcracer.co.nz

The flywheel and clutch parts (except for the pinions and clutch bell) are the same as the MTX4
